Cleveland digital marketing agency owners put their employees and clients first in difficult times

We are proud to announce 42connect, Inc., a Cleveland-based digital marketing agency was awarded one of Ohio’s best workplaces by Ohio Business Magazine. This is the fifth year the magazine has given out this award as a reminder Ohio has great places to work.

According to Ohio Business Magazine, many things have changed in 2020, including what even constitutes a workplace. The winners for the award were selected by a committee through their answers to questions about the following:

  • In-person team events
  • Welcoming offices
  • Fun amenities
  • Community involvement
  • Engagement with employees
  • Benefit structures
  • Past awards

“At the end of the day, it’s all about good leadership and clear direction. I think having a workplace that builds you up and helps you grow professionally and personally is the most important thing. That’s what motivates and excites you to go to work every day ready to deliver the best results,” said John Millin, Senior Project Manager. “The support we give each other every day here at 42connect is incredible. We’re built on trust in ourselves as experts in our respective fields, trust in each other as teammates, and trust in our relationship with our clients.”

However, with COVID-19, things have changed significantly in terms of how companies are upholding their workplace cultures. 42connect was also recognized for their work during the pandemic to continue their support of employees, culture, and remaining one of the best workplaces in the state of Ohio during such difficult times.

42connect wanted to ensure their employees felt safe and comfortable in their work environment. Together, they agreed that being flexible for each employee would generate the best results for the team and their clients. Employees were given the opportunity to work remotely indefinitely until they felt safe coming into the downtown office. However, once the office building was closed, partners, Brian Ferritto and Hany ElHibir, decided to show their support in this difficult time by surprising each employee and their family with meals delivered to their homes tailored to their food preferences and places they often grab lunch.

“It’s about making our team know that we care and want to see each person succeed,” said Brian Ferritto, Partner and Director of Digital Strategy. “Although this situation is affecting our local communities, our families, and our business in a multitude of ways, we want 42connect to be a place where each employee can feel safe and thrive. We always keep communication open and honest here and it’s made us stronger.”
